"He wanted to be the best athlete he could possibly be, competing in triathalons, pushing himself to his limit, and taking all kinds of dietary supplements. When he was offered to try a new supplement- experimental GM Chemically-Altered DNA-Infused Carrot Juice that was guaranteed to make athletes run faster, longer, jump higher, and be stronger- he was happy to volunteer. At first, while training, results were positive and nothing seemed out of the ordinary, but things changed when he began drinking it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as he found the taste almost addicting. Despite original warnings from the suppliers, he continued drinking it, only seeing positive results with his training.
One day while out jogging, he began to feel very odd, much more alert and jittery. Before he knew it, the side effects from the drink began to mutate his body, causing his ears to lengthin drastically as his feet cramped and stretched. He managed to make it away from watchful eyes, hiding behind a tree as the changes sped up, permanently changing him into a very athletic anthro rabbit. While this wasn't exactly what the creators had in mind when they engineered the drink, they can't say it didn't do it's job, he was now a bigger, faster, and much better athlete. Though he'll have a lot of trouble ever finding shoes that'll fit now."
I always loved the idea of an athlete being forced to transform due to his own desire to improve, plus the idea of a rabbit transformation in a park has always fascinated me. This gave me a chance to play with foilage (trees, grass, shrubs, etc.,) something I always struggled with before taking the Digital Coloring class taught by Brian Haberlin http://digitalarttutorials.com/
I like the way the color turned out in this piece, as it makes everything seem lively. I wanted to clean up everything so that when someone does FULL VIEW they can feel like they're IN the scene. Hope you guys enjoy!
